I kinda liked this
10 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

OK so it's low budget and a Slasher B Movie and you can tell from the get go.

The premise is Breakfast club meets 80s slasher flicks. It starts as a kind of parody of Breakfast club and for me they got that 80s teen drama vibe pretty well.

The outfits and dialogue were good as was the music.

The opening of the film sets the tone really for the next 80 mins. The special fx were decent using 80s methods. There is blood and gore etc.

I thought the actual killings could have been a bit more interesting however and there are certain scenes that linger a bit too long.

There is a cameo from Ron Jeremy as the caretaker which neither adds or detracts from the film.

It is what it is but for the budget I think they did a pretty good job. I've seen much worse low budget films and this one doesn't take itself seriously and neither should you.

If you want to while away 80 minutes with some 80s throwback nostalgia then give it a go.

6/10 something to watch if your bored and a bit of an 80s kid.
